Is this a clutch problem?

My Peugeot 307SW diesel on an 03 plate has just developed a problem where I am struggling to get it into gear.

The inital 5 minutes (from cold) are OK but from then on I find it difficult to get the car into anything other than 2nd gear and there is a slight slppage on the clutch.

The gears grind a little there is some smell too. The car has only done 59500 miles.

Is this likely to be a new clutch, dual mass flywheel or just a thrust bearing or cable?

Reads like a failing dual mass flywheel.

Makes sense of the 307. Up to seven forward-facing seats. Good to drive. Decent diesels.
